In the Brooder
- Jun 5, 2019
So, we have mites, but that's not why I'm posting. We are in the process of cleaning out the coop (I've ordered Elector PSP but it will take almost 2 weeks to arrive), and can't let the hens in there right now but they are super panicked, banging against their coop door because they want to go in and lay their eggs. We set up a couple of spots in their outside run and a couple have laid but the others are pitching a fit. Is this normal? Should we be worried? Is there anything else we can do in the meantime? There's no way we can let them in the coop just to lay as it's been sprayed down with a premetherin (sp?) spray. Will their bodies eventually force them to lay somewhere or will we have to worry about them getting egg bound?
